 Cara Delivingne talks ‘Suicide Squad’ saying superhero movies are sexist

While British actress Cara Delevingne was promoting her new film, Paper Towns in an interview Empire, she discussed her role in new year’s Suicide Squad, but bashed comic book films in general, calling them “Sexist.”

I’ve “never been so excited to see a film” Delevingne says of Suicide Squad. “There are only three girls in [Suicide Squad] but in my opinion they have the best roles,” she tellsEmpire.

“Generally though, superhero movies are totally sexist.”

Cara was referring to her role as Enchantress, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.

“Female superheroes are normally naked or in bikinis,” Delevingne continued. “No one would be able to fight like that. Wonder Woman, how the hell does she fight? She would be dead in a minute.”

New Suicide SquadDelevingne’s recent comments echo what she  told EW about the genre.

“I’m not the biggest fan of superhero films,” she said. “There are so f–king many. I love the Batmans but some of them I’m not that keen on.”

Directed by David Ayer (Fury, Sabotage, End of Watch) the film will also star Will Smith, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Scott Eastwood, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Viola Davis, Adam Beach, Common, Jay Hernandez, Ike Barinholtz, Jim Parrack with a cameo by Ben Affleck.

Suicide Squad arrives in theaters on August 5, 2016.
